and mouse game. >>guest: it is. we had prime minister binyamin netanyahu go to the u.n. and he made his case at the u.n. for not letting this happen, his case to the global community and now we see iran, whether they are trying to assert how close israel might be to a strike or picking out targets they may want to hit in retaliation, but one thing that is important for people to realize, drones can be used for surveillance but they can be used to deliver weapons. there is a reason that israelis have gas masks that are handed out to the citizens. this is a real concern about that and we know syria has chemical weapons available. therefore it is likely they could end up in iranians hands and end up with hezbollah. >>shepard: the bigger concern going on what is -- going on in syria, that could throw things off. >>guest: certainly a ways that the iranian would like to divert attention about being the west against iran, is to make it islam against the little satan and the great satan, israel and the united states and turn this into a religious conflict globally. that is something we have to keep
, they have shared the wealth, and it's true that even according to the u.n. there are fewer people today living in poverty in venezuela than there were when chavez took office. you know, randi, there is a sense here that, look, his time is over, and that's not just because he fought cancer. he claims he's cancer-free but on the campaign trail he isn't looking very healthy, and there is this sense that chavez revolution, the very left wing socialist revolution that he started, could be waning and the problem is taking from government coffers they haven't really invested as much. if you start from that oil infrastructure moving right down to the roads, in caracas, in the capital or out to the regions where there's lots of power, this is a country hanging on by a fiscal threat and they say next year default is perhaps possible and for sure financial restructuring will have to happen, and that could mean a devaluation of the currency here. randi? >> paula, what is at stake really for the u.s. in this election. >> reporter: you know, it might surprise many people in the united states that alm
said syrians had fled the country, almost a third had fled. jordan and the u.n. are working to get children back in school but there are challenges. take a listen. >> there are two problems here in jordan. one is that i was just at the zatari camp near the border where there are about 30,000 refugees and where you started from scratch with unhcr and others just a couple months ago and we are building schools and finding teachers, both jordanian and syrian to teach the kids, but the problem is winter is coming and it is all tents right now. so urgently we are working to bring in prefabricated buildings and others. but about two-thirds of the refugees from syria have scattered in jordan and are living in communities where we are working to bring them into schools because with typical arab hospitality, the jordanians are welcoming them into the public school system. so there's a lot of work there. the main problem, of course, is all the schools in syria. we are seeing a tenth of them damaged. there are a lot of kids out of school and we are very actively trying to get them into school
'll have to continue to watch it. >> thank you. it will be exciting at the u.n. you know that. >>> i want to take you now to the syrian, turkish border. this has been a mess lately. artillery fire has been flying over the border and it started concerns that the cross border dispute could be a big, large regional battle. ivan watson's on the ground there. >> reporter: turkish and syrian artillery have now exchanged fire across the border for a sixth straight day. the turks are making it very clear that any time any gunfire or cannons or mortars fire into turkish territory from syria, they will respond immediately in kind. as far as the military alliance goes, last week, they held emergency talks declaring support for turkey when it first came under fire and also condemning syria for shooting into turkish territory, but up until now, no one has invoked article five of the charter. that considers attacks on one member of the alliance to be an attack on all of them and requires the entire alliance to come to the defense of the attacked party. >> all right. thank you very much. coming up next,

and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
. >> sreenivasan: the u.n. secretary-general, ban ki-moon, also weighed in. he warned today that the escalating conflict along the turkish-syrian border is "extremely dangerous." a commercial cargo ship was en route to the international space station today on track to arrive wednesday. the falcon rocket, with its unmanned dragon capsule, was launched last night from cape canaveral, florida. it's the first of 12 supply runs under a contract between the private firm space x and nasa. the capsule carries about a thousand pounds of experiments and other gear. the price of gas in california has hit another record high for the third day in a row, in the wake of a pipeline and refinery shutdown. people pumping gas across the state today paid an average $4.67 a gallon, the highest in the nation. and in parts of southern california, drivers at some stations are paying close to $6 a gallon. on sunday, governor jerry brown ordered the sale of winter-blend gas three weeks early to increase supplies. wall street started off the week on the losing side. the dow jones industrial average dropped 26 points to c
a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before that attack occurred. so, i don't think that they should be throwing around the word liar too often, but it's kind of like in a football game when you get taken out behind the wood shed and shellacked pretty bad, blaming the referees or blaming that the grass was too high or the other team cheated. you have to accept the fact that you got beat en. swacked, can you-- >> that's a sec football kind of word that you can use. stuart: all right, congressman. and i've got another topic for you, the vice-presidential debate is surely going to bring up medicare and paul ryan's reform plan. now you've got a florida district. how is medicare reform, the ryan plan, romney plan, how is it playing in your district? >> it's playing well because we ha

told a different story. we have a special ambassador to the u.n. thank you for joining us. we had venezuela citizens tweeting exit polls showing that the challenger actually won by several percentage points. is there any recourse here? >> there are elections coming up at the govern ship level and really reveal and be a referendum on what i see is a decline in chavez popularity. in terms of recourse it will be very challenging to overturn the election results. you have a highly technical election process. it's clear with chavez controlling the air wave, the election commission and pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into the provinces before the elections that it amounts to what i think would be at least a 5-point differential if this were a truly transparent and free election. patti ann: yeah, fenn there are no irregularities found at the poll as you say, they say chavez used state-controlled media to influence public opinion. he gave away pensions and houses essentially buying votes. is it even in pricing that chavez won by a much smaller margin than in the past? >> it is ver
